December -Holiday Party

TVQG HOLIDAY CELEBRATION
Friday, December 15, 2017
The doors will open at 8:00 am

Just a friendly reminder!

SAVORY DISH – Last names beginning with A-M

SWEET DISH – Last names beginning with N –Z

Again, we will be serving brisket, ham & turkey, so please feel free to bring your favorite holiday dish to compliment our entrees. Have your food item ready to serve and if you wish to use the Church’s warming oven be sure to place your item in an oven-safe container.

Lunch will be served at 10:45 am. Those needing help with serving will be assisted by a “hospitality ambassador.” All others will be randomly selected table by table, so no one has to stand in line for an extended period of time.

Table Decorations:

Our decorators are making a list and checking it twice. We thank those who have volunteered to decorate a table(s). Again, the tables are round, seats 8 and will be covered in a white tablecloth. A hostess gift at each place setting is optional.

Table Seating:

If you are new to our Guild we know it can be challenging to find a place to sit, so please find me, a hospitality crew member, hospitality ambassador or door-greeter and we will help you locate a seat and introduce you to your table members.

Volunteers:

We would like to thank all our “hospitality ambassadors,” as well as Sharon Gunnels’ (Unraveled) and Linda LaFleur’s (Sew Blessed) for asking their bees to volunteer during the Christmas party. Your help will truly be appreciated!

HOSPITALITY COMMITTEESharon Carter, Jean Moulder, Kathy Sibley & Vivian Byers wish you a “Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!”

Winter 2018 Program Update

Finally, some cooler weather!  I know many of you are year round quilting fanatics, but I seem to have more seasonal choices in my crafting.  Summer is a great time for small handwork.  This year has been an English paper piecing love fest.  Once the weather starts to change, larger projects and knitting reappear.  If you have been waiting for fall to come, it seems to be here.  I hope all of you are catching a serious case of the quilting bug. 
 
In December we will have our annual holiday celebration.  There will be food and fun for all as we gather together.  Special guests have been invited and we will celebrate our work with the wider Tarrant County community.  You will be amazed at how our quilting is touching so many lives. 
 
We live in a rapidly changing technological age.  So many ways to communicate that we often seem to be overloaded with information.  But I think the massive changes in transportation that occurred in the early 1900's are often overlooked today.  I grew up near a town called Halfday.  Why?  Because when it was founded it took a half day to travel down to the big city of Chicago.  Now it takes about 30 minutes.  Cars and roads made the difference.  The first interstate road was called the Bankhead Highway.  We still drive on it using that name in Parker County but now it is  called Camp Bowie in Fort Worth.  I can't imagine what  a dramatic change in people's lives cars, trains and automobiles made.  So in January we will discover how quilts changed to reflect that time.  Rägi Marino has made a study of when airplanes first showed up in quilts.  What early patterns looked like.  How the plane was front and center in so many World War II quilts.  Her workshop Thursday will be making a simple airplane block that can be used in a variety of quilts.  Even if you don't think you want an airplane quilt, come and make a block.  We can use it it some of our community outreach quilts.  On Friday we will be having a trunk show of some of these special quilts she has collected and the stories behind them. 
 
So we start off the year.  Other programs will be on free motion quilting, piecing and applique.  We will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of the guild. There will be a quilt show and a member's market.  So many ways to learn and practice our skills.  Come and join us.
